Hypercat UK Showcase 2016
BY INVITATION ONLY
The BT Centre, 81 Newgate Street, London
27th September 2016, 10.00am - 4.00pm - (Registration from 9.30am)
What will deliver $11 Trillion by 2025?
According to McKinsey, Internet of Things applications could have an $11 trillion impact by 2025. These emerging technologies will transform the way we design, build and run our national infrastructure. This transformation is already underway.
The Hypercat* Alliance, funded by UK government, with an international membership of over 1,000, is driving the development of new supply chains, standards and technologies. The UK has a leadership position in IoT and expects to create 67,000 new jobs and add over £80 billion to our economy by 2020.
Join us at the Hypercat showcase to understand the driving forces behind this value creation and meet the principle thought leaders and innovators who are making this happen.
You will hear from each of the Hypercat spearheads about what’s been achieved and the challenges overcome. They will describe how data from the spearhead solutions has come together in “Hyperspace” to demonstrate the benefits of IoT interoperability.
The event is also a great opportunity for you to get involved in the future evolution of Hypercat and the IoT. We will discuss the latest developments with BSI, the World Wide Web Consortium and leading technology businesses. Together with major players in the built environment space, we will also explore how collaboration and interoperability can help to reduce the risk and improve the value of major infrastructure developments.
Seats are by strictly limited. Please register now to reserve your place.
* What is Hypercat? The Hypercat specification allows Internet of Things (IoT) clients to discover information about IoT assets over the web. With Hypercat, developers can write applications that will work across many servers, breaking down the walls between vertical silos.
